Introducing Deputy, an L Suite Community

A note from our founders

Deputy Members:

We’re thrilled to officially welcome you to The L Suite’s Deputy community, the new parent brand we launched to bring together our diverse member base while continuing to focus your day-to-day experience around a core group of your closest peers. 

As part of this update, the community formerly known as DeputyGC has been split into two new communities under The L Suite umbrella. Deputy (your community) is an exclusive new community curated specifically for #2’s and similarly senior in-house counsel (with 10+ years of legal experience and broad job responsibilities). Members that are earlier in their careers or that have a more narrow set of responsibilities in their roles have now been separated out into their own adjacent community called Counsel

Rest assured that you will continue to have access to the same breadth of events and Braintrust resources that you’ve had in the past. We believe this update will only enhance your overall member experience by focusing it around your most senior peers. The new brand also provides a powerful new nomenclature. The L Suite is a nod to the common C-Suite terminology, acknowledging “Legal” as an essential part of the executive suite. We knew we needed a brand that unites in-house legal executives like you, and also recognizes the significance of your roles. 

Please see the FAQs below for additional information about this update. And if you have any other questions, don’t hesitate to reach out to either one of us or to We always appreciate hearing from you.

As a final note, we wanted to thank you for being a member and a supporter of this incredible community. It is a difficult job to do what you do, and we’re humbled to be able to play a small role in supporting your journey.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • The main difference you will notice is that your community is now exclusively senior in-house counsel like yourself (with 10+ years of legal experience and broad job responsibilities). Otherwise, nothing substantive is changing about your membership experience and you’ll continue to receive all of the same benefits you do today.

    With this new structure, we will continue our efforts to better personalize your experience, including Braintrust discussions and events filled with peers that are more closely aligned to your particular company type, industry, experience level, etc. We have much more to come on this front over the course of the year, so stay tuned!

    FYI - we also made a few non-substantive changes to the Membership Agreement, Privacy Policy, and Terms of Use to account for The L Suite terminology.

  • We have always taken a slow and deliberate approach to expanding this community, as we understand that the magic is in its careful curation. It's the experience of being in a room (whether physically or virtually) with a group of your closest peers, the ones that have navigated similar challenges as you have and are willing to listen and assist you in a safe space that sets it apart.

    By popular demand from our members, we did expand the community over time to include a wider range of in-house counsel. The point has now come for us to separate out those members who are earlier in their careers or that have a more narrow set of responsibilities into their own community, and focus your membership experience around a community of your most senior in-house peers.

  • No, membership dues are not changing as part of this update.

  • The URL of the Braintrust platform will change to (but the old URL will redirect to this new one if you forget). You’ll also see a slightly updated look. There are no other major changes to the Braintrust today, but you can expect to see a more personalized experience and some exciting new features in the coming months!

  • Your events lineup for this year was created with these changes in mind, and you’ll find more curated peer groups at dinners, conferences, and virtual events. Based on your feedback, we’re also adding more social and networking events. You can see all Deputy events here:

  • Our team remains one collaborative organization focused on serving you. All emails that used to come from ‘’ (including from the Braintrust, daily digests, newsletters, event invites, notes from our team, etc.) will now come from the ‘’ domain, so please make sure to add this new domain (and, our event platform) to your “safe senders list.” See instructions here.

    For any and all questions, you can always reach out to Our Member Success team will ensure your questions are answered ASAP.
